Articles published in the Journal of Tourism and Leisure Studies are peer reviewed by scholars who are active members of the Tourism & Leisure Studies Research Network. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the journal, or scholars who have volunteered to referee articles and have been screened by Common Ground’s editorial team. This engagement with the Research Network, as well as Common Ground’s criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes our peer review process from those of journals that have a more top-down approach to refereeing.
The Journal of Tourism and Leisure Studies reviewers are assigned to articles based on their academic interests and scholarly expertise. In recognition of the valuable feedback and publication recommendations that they provide, reviewers may request an official letter/certificate.
When publishing with us, you don’t just get the opportunity to write, you also provide feedback on other articles submitted to the Journal of Tourism and Leisure Studies.
The guidance that reviewers supply is invaluable and helps to shape the Journal of Tourism and Leisure Studies.
Participating in the review process is a great way to gain firsthand experience with the publishing process.
We recognize the important role of peer reviewers by acknowledging their contribution with an official letter/certificate.
